SUMMARY: John Bull, holding a pipe and a frothing tankard, is beset by the Regent and Ministers. Sidmouth furtively takes the pipe from his hand, looking over John's head at the Regent who extends his hand to seize the tankard. The Regent, with both legs gouty and swollen, says: "Yes and I would take the blood from your veins if I could get any thing for it." At John's feet kneels Vansittart, ferociously plying a hammer inscribed Cannon with which he fixes to the floor a heavy chain riveted to an iron belt round John's waist. At the other end of the table sits Mrs. Bull, with tea-pot. She throws up her arms in dismay as Castlereagh takes the tea-pot. Eldon, in chancellor's wig and gown, walks off with wool sack.
